The race is comprised of a 10k loop along the MTB and equestrian trails of Burns Park. 50K runners will run 5 loops, 30K runners will run 3 loops, and 10K runners will run 1 loop.
Each loop will include around 760 feet (230m) of ascent, so show up prepared for some hills!
3 loops: 2,280ft of elevation gain (690m)
5 loops: 3,800ft of elevation gain (1,150m)
The trails consist of packed dirt in most areas, with rocky patches scattered throughout. There are two creek crossings during the loop, both of which are manageably crossable. This is a true trail, so if it has rained within the previous week (or on race day), expect to get a little muddy and wet!
Historically, the start time for the event should see temperatures hovering around the mid to high 60's, but as the day progresses temperatures may climb to the upper 70's to lower 80's. Preparations for the humidity and heat should be made as necessary. Regardless of the weather conditions, we will continue to race unless life-threatening circumstances occur. We will send out emails as the event gets closer on weather conditions and what to expect.
Of course! 3 aid stations will line the 10k loop in addition to the main aid station. Each aid station will be stocked with water and electrolyte options. There will be aid stations at miles 2.2, 4.4 and 5.3. The main aid station will have a variety of foods and electrolyte options that every runner and participant is welcome to indulge in. Note that not every aid station may have food (save for the main one), and so the necessary preparations should be made.
Awards will be given to the first male and first female in each race category. In addition to first place awards, this year Texas Outlaw is implementing the DFL award, or "Dead Freakin' Last" award. This award will be given out to the last person to cross the finish line for the 50K distance before the cutoff.
Any additional registration information can be found on our ultrasignup page, which can be found here. We have a limited number of spots for the event, so register as soon as possible!
